Social LEAD Team

Being a part of the Social LEAD Team was a very great experience. My last two years I was a part of LEAD teams that were very much planning for a day or week being competition day for LAS and the LAS in the D experience. This year was quite different. I got to mainly work with a lot of the younger members of the LAS team being the only Junior on this team. Our job as Social LEAD Team members is to plan events for everyone in the Leadership Institute. It was really awesome planning different events throughout the year and bringing the Leadership Institute closer together. My favorite event, which was a huge success, was LAS on Ice. I learned a lot about camaraderie and bonding with people all from a huge, but close organization.

Lead Team Reflection

As Leader Advancement Scholar, one of our requirements is to be an active member of a all LAS group called a LEAD TEAM that has a specific job in order of the advancement of the Leadership Institute. The LEAD TEAM that I was a part of was our 2015 Competition Day LEAD TEAM. The LAS Competition Day is an annual event that we put on as our day where we just the top 80 applications for the Leader Advancement Scholarship. There the potential LAS students go through an interview and multiple leadership activities and are judged by current LAS. We all get to hang out a talk to the students.

Our LEAD TEAM was very fun and we got it all accomplished with ease. We only met once and all the rest of the communication was done through email. Competition Day itself was the execution of our LEAD TEAM. We planned literally everything, hosted the events, and made sure that everything going on at the event ran smoothly.

After participating with the Competition Day LEAD TEAM, I learned a lot about email communication. I personally wish that we met more often because I feel like other LAS benefitted more through their LEAD TEAMS then I felt with mine. Yes, I did have a lot of fun, but I feel like I did not get out of it what I wanted to get. I am much looking forward to hopefully be working with another LEAD TEAM.

I do not have any digital evidence for Competition Day, but here is a snapchat at Midnight the day of Competition Day and a text from my Mom.
